JeezUS!
I posted this as commentary by the alternative community AGAINST the 
Malathion and Pyrethroid-based products that schools are told to use 
against head lice, and to give a real example of what's out there, 
now that school is about to re-start.

I also found the statement by Steve -- who is a former pesticides 
applicator living in Michigan who has turned against his old 
profession in a bit-time way -- that mayonnaise gets rid of head lice 
to be fascinating, and was seeking SCIENTIFIC comments from 
SCENCE-FOR-THE-PEOPLE about this.

I doubt that the product mentioned here is making it big off of being 
mentioned here.

Furthermore, what's wrong with posting material here in favor (or 
against) specific products? We did that with Gardasil, and a bunch of 
folks on this list promoted it at the time.

Please get your fingers off the censorship buttons.
